The rubber wall

My hopes bounce
Against reality
Like bricks thrown
Against a rubber wall

Then they fall
And break into pieces
I collect them patiently
And put them back together

I carefully watch the wall
My eyes unable to identify
Any visible breach
In its uniform, black thickness

Still I collect once again
All my residual energies
And I close my eyes
Ready for a new throw.
